How to Plant Green

Peninsula Pride, Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farms Network host Field Day Aug. 17

Regenerative farming and planting green are two of the cutting-edge topics that will be discussed at a field day on Aug. 17, 11 am – 2:30 pm, at Deer Run Dairy, N1225 Sleepy Hollow Road, Kewaunee. The event is hosted by Peninsula Pride Farms and the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farms Network. Presenters include Rick Clark, Jamie Patton and Barry Bubolz.

Clark is a fifth-generation farmer from Indiana who will share his systematic approach to regenerative farming and its ability to be viable and sustainable for generations.

Patton, senior outreach specialist for the Nutrient and Pest Management Program at the University of Wisconsin Madison-Extension, will discuss key soil health properties and the impact of conservation practices on things like soil water dynamics, nutrient cycling and crop productivity during an evaluation in a soil pit.

Bubolz of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service will use a rainfall simulator on different soil management systems and discuss how the principles of soil health can affect the area soil and water quality.
